Back-End Systems (Melinda Cohan)

  • Episode #20

Melinda Cohan, author of The Confident Coach and CEO of The Coaches Console, discusses the role that different systems play in different phases of business, and how systems are the secret to gaining more clients and more control over your own future.

Melinda Cohan helps coaches remove the complexities of business so they can build a business they love, attract ideal clients and make a lasting impact—and she does it through her coaching and software. Author of The Confident Coach and CEO of The Coaches Console, Melinda makes the case that systems are a means to an end—and that “end” is more clients, more money, more time, more freedom, more confidence, more control over your own future.

Hosts Linda Claire Puig and Ari Iny explore with Melinda why it’s important to put into place the right systems for each phase (and stop fretting about the systems that come later).  

In this episode, we discuss:

  • An approach to automating and streamlining your business operations…so you can free yourself from tedious admin and marketing tasks and focus on delivering great service to your clients
  • The exact systems coaches and consultants use to spend more time doing the work they love (while earning a steady, reliable income)
  • How to evolve as your business grows so that you can keep increasing your income while reducing your administrative load (this keeps you from hitting a plateau in your business)
  • And much more!
“They’ve got a patchwork business that’s held together by spitballs and duct tape. And then they wonder why they don’t feel confident putting themselves out there.”
